Overcoming Barriers to Romantic Love

I discovered this lecture on Youtube yesterday. I had trouble believing I did not come across it sooner. After watching the talk beginning to end I published it under the creative commons license to The 21 Convention Youtube Channel.

The content itself is first class. In video format, it is a true gem of a find, and a window to the past for someone of my age.

If you enjoyed my lecture on romantic love, this is an absolute must watch.


In the future, I may consider incorporating this lecture into 21 University. Specifically because if he were healthy enough to speak at The 21 Convention, this is a fine example of what that lecture might be.

I also had the opportunity to meet Nathaniel in his home last year.

In related news, Nathaniel’s former wife Barbara recently died (link).

    Thank you for sharing this great video.

    I’ve enjoyed all the content thus far on romance, after finding the most amazing girl of my life, it turns out actually being with a girl is harder than picking them up when you still have issues and communication problems you still need to work out that you never knew you had.

    Sock is great, and I still need to read nathaniel branden’s book, but I really enjoyed your video on romantic love, it really put me at ease, because it allowed me to realize that I can find true love, it is real, and that my ability to foster love and be mature about my relationships are within my control.

    The romantic relationship is but one amongst many important human relationships. That it is exalted above others is simply a matter of personal opinion. Just as there are many people who exalt the parent-child relationship above others and assert that it is the most important. They make very good rational points to back this opinion up.

    But all human relationships impact us and all have their symbiotic place.
